Tip: Whatever coding system you devise beforehand, make sure to test it out on the software program sorting and retrieval system. It will read the code numbers differently, according to whether they are letters or numbers.
Make sure that you are viewing non-printing characters by clicking the Show/Hide button on the toolbar (the button with on it). You should see paragraph marks next to the word Agreement if you are viewing these characters.
Instead of working harder than you need to, insert a one-column table with as many rows as necessary to accommodate your list. Then, using Word’s numbering feature, number that column. Finally, convert the table to text. The resulting list is a fixed numbered list, so you’ll have to live with its limitations; when you can do so, this method definitely beats most alternative solutions.
Developing Document Control and Image Numbering Systems. The document and imaging numbering or coding system for your application gives you control over the documents. If you are going to image documents, the document database record number and the image record or file number may be the same number. A document and imaging numbering or coding system can be very simple or sophisticated, depending upon your desires and the needs of a particular case. Below are three possible methods of coding your documents and images:
We can now apply the master page we have created to page 2 and onwards. Select the master page you have created in the Page Navigation Pane and then on the Ribbon click the Apply To menu and select Apply Master Page….
The key question for version 1.1 is whether it will be released. Every change should (I say must) be approved, otherwise we are accumulating a series of unapproved changes for some future approval and release. If one does the latter, then 1.1 cannot be released and it is considered an internal interim version. To do this well requires a change/release/document control log (whatever we want to call it).
You want the numbered list in your Word document to start at 1, but it keeps starting at 4, even if you select Restart Numbering from the shortcut menu. Rather than try to renumber, follow these steps:
Roxane, thanks so much for your direction! Not even having document numbers hadn’t even come into thought before now. I appreciate you pointing me to focus on the who owns the documentation, the document control process and the method that they are created….it really helped me to redirect. I was caught in one of those “that’s how we’ve always done it” situations and I didn’t even realize it! The real value is the document and the importance needs to be of it’s ease of use for the persons who need it.
Thanks very much for your prompt reply, which reassured me that I was on the right path. From having read various Help topics, I suspected that I’d have to use an Excel data source for the numbers. Fortunately, my knowledge of Excel was good enough to know about the drag and drop facility to create automatic sequential numbering, so the data source creation was easy. In the end, it was the mail merge (no surprises?) which proved a tad tricky, but I got there in the end. I’ve used MM many times and quite happily in Word documents, but for Publisher label format, it was of course a bit different. The important bit that I had to discover for myself was the significance of, after getting to the Print stage, going into Print options, to Publication & Paper Settings, and selecting Multiple Pages per Sheet (& in my case, also “Single-sided” cos my default of duplex printing had come up). But TA-DA! All is fine now. Thanks very much again.
If not, the changes you are making may not be sticking because of an Add-In or other problem with saving changes to normal.dotm. As a short-term experiment, when you have normal.dotm open type a phrase on the page like:
Numbering & Section Options dialog shown next to the Pages Panel. Notice that the document is divided into three sections, the middle section using lowercase Roman numerals and an alternate master page.
Starting with X4, I had been using the macro collection “wx_showLayer.gms” found here: URL…. The most useful of those macros is one that automatically makes the layer a newly selected object is on the currently active layer, rigt upon clicking the object. Working with layers a lot, I got pretty much used to that feature; keeping copies of objects on the same layer, for example, can be achieved blindly this way.
Alternatively, you can add page numbers to the header or footer by clicking the Page Number command and then selecting Top of Page or Bottom of Page. If you have an existing header or footer, it will be removed and replaced with the page number.
I’m trying to figure out how to allow the page number to show in front of a placed image on the page in the background. I can’t find a way to make the page number come to the front. Half my page numbers are missing because of images placed.
You’ll see the page numbers for each document to the right. In the example above, the documents are not in the correct order, and the page numbering for Chapter 1 should begin with number 1. Your documents might not be in the correct order or be numbered properly.
You can click the “Apply To” drop-down button to apply the currently selected master page to pages within your publication. From the drop-down you can select the “Apply to All Pages” command to apply the selected master page to all the publication pages. You can select “Apply to Current Page” to apply the master page to the currently selected publication page. You could also select the “Apply Master Page…” command to open the “Apply Master Page” dialog box. In this dialog box, you have the option to apply the currently selected master page to all, the current page, or a page range within the publication. If you select the “Pages” option, enter the page range into the adjacent text boxes. Then click the “OK” button to finish.
To display the “Master Page” view, click the “View” tab in the Ribbon. Then click the “Master Page” button in the “Views” button group on the “View” tab in the Ribbon. The master pages for the current will appear in the Navigation Pane at the left side of the window. Click a master page in the Navigation Pane to display it for editing in the main window. This causes the “Master Page” tab to be displayed in the Ribbon. Use the buttons on this tab to manipulate the master pages in Publisher within the publication.
The standard method for displaying a page number in InDesign is to insert an Automatic Page Number Marker into a text frame (Text menu: Insert Special Character: Marker: Current Page Number). This is typically done on your master page(s) so that the page number will appear on every page using that master. If you wish to hide the page number on pages in your document, just use a different master that does not include the marker (or use the “None” master if you do not wish to display any master page items).
Under normal circumstances, it is fairly easy in Microsoft Word to reset page numbering when starting a new section of your document. However, such a simple thing can be non-trivial when dealing with the BI Publisher Template Builder plugin for Microsoft Office (available from Oracle — see BI Publisher Desktop).
